Best Time to Visit Laos

The best time to visit Laos is between October and April, the weather is a little dryer and the sun is comfortably warm. Rainy season in Laos is May to September, if you don’t mind a some humidity, a bit of heat and maybe the odd shower then it’s a great time to explore, less tourists make for a much more authentic experience. December/January is going to be perfect weather-wise but do bear in mind it’s peak time to travel so you’ll pay a bit more for accommodation and you should book at least 6 months out if you want to get your first choices in hotels.
